We are putting out new Extreme switches (x460 and x440) into different buildings. We are running 15.3.2.111. We use cisco phones for our VoIP. We have models 8945 and 9951 which also provide video. They have worked great in our test building (which was small), however now the video isn't working in the newer deployments. We are using netlogin to authenticate all devices. When a phone is authenticated (mac auth) a UPM profile is ran to turn on lldp and set dscp...
You can make calls without a problem. I'm wondering if there is an uplink/downlink setting that we need that I have completely forgot about. Below is what our UPM script.
Any help/suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Hey Blake

if you disable .1p you probably you don't need to set the 1.p value to a queue or replace it unless the next switches inline are looking at .1p


The switch has a hierarchy to how we look at QoS parameters.  ACLs have the highest priority, then .1p then VLAN then DSCP. so if you do not use ACL or .1p the switch will then use VLAN.

The commands you issued above are ok and will not affect the switch just may not be needed if the switches are set to disable .1p examination.

Does that help?
